I showed this sneak peak of my new Bess Georgette dress the other day and now I am going to show you the whole dress in all it’s cuteness.
Vintage 50s Dress by Kerrybrook – Bess Georgette
Navy Blue Stockings – Levante
Navy & White Ballet Flats – Wittner
I was so excited when the lovely Teresa from Bess Georgette contacted me awhile back to say she might have something in my size coming up soon. I pestered her and pestered her and pestered her and finally a few weeks back she told me it was ready, photographed and she had official sizing. I snapped it up straight away as look at it – it’s freaking adorable!
Out of all of my vintage clothes I really think this is the most youthful thing I own. I tend to dress more “matronly”…But I just adore this dress to pieces. It is also my first plaid dress in my wardrobe (not sure how that is possible given how keen I am for plaids). The only thing I need to do is add a press stud or a hook and eye between two of the buttons on the bust – these smaller buttons have a tendency to pop open (not that it phases me as I wear old fashioned underwear too – a slip and a longline bra is between this dress and and skin that could show)….but apart from that it is perfect! It fits perfectly, it’s in immaculate condition and so cute. So cute it made me want to do something different with my hair….
Mascara – Max Factor False Lash Effect in Black
Blush – Natio in “Peach Glow”
Lipstick – Laura Mercier “Mistress”
I stole this plaid headband from Miss 13 (who originally stole it from me) and attempted a little beehive/bouffant. Despite much teasing and it feeling huge, by the time I pinned it all up I realised it was actually quite small *sad face*. Next time I will see if I can get it even bigger.
So lovely Ladies, What are you wearing this week?
